The only threat to Democracy in this thread is what you see when you look in a mirror.
The Republicans will prevent you from harming our democracy.
If you are going to quote a partisan politician making the expected partisan argument, at keast get the partisan rhetoric correct.
Thank you for sharing your opinion of me.
I just checked and there is research on the relationship between compulsory voting and information seeking particularly in Australia. You can see the summary here https://www.researchgate.net/publication/322708501_Compulsory_voting_and_voter_information_seeking
Quote:This suggests that the negative relationship between compulsory voting and the “quality” of votes is partly due to the fact that those who are compelled to turn out expend less effort when deciding how to cast their ballots.
I'm not debating whether compulsory voting is good, bad. better or worst; what I'm saying, and have been saying, is that it's much better than NOT HAVING A CHANCE to vote. In democratic systems, of course. I really don't care if Joe Blow (no offence, Joe Blow) votes this way or that - what matters is that Joe Blow CAN vote.
So, the only way the federal government can stop these states from these restrictive rules is to mandate voting so they are legally required to ensure everyone gets an equal opportunity to exercise their rights and obligations.
Should any of our provinces and territories try to adopt these measures, there would be protests like never before. It just wouldn't happen. And I am shaking my head that it's not only happening in the USA, but it's pervasive. Un-freaking-believable. But not so much unbelievable, really, from all that nonsense of the last four years.
My opinion of you went all the way to zero when I saw how you were bullying Lash.
The moderators will remove my post if I tell you what I truly think of you.
